Initiative summary:

Established in 2007, the South Women Media Forum is a key actor in empowering female journalists and activists in Gaza. The group seeks to address the lack of opportunities for female media graduates and the poor educational system in universities, as well as the lack of women's participation in Gazan public and political life. EED funding is allowing them to train young women interested in engaging in media and political work, and to conduct advocacy campaigns that aim to increase women's rights and empowerment in Gaza
